It was an ok dinner, not a big deal for the price... It would be ok for a 1 time experience only.

While this is not the restaurants fault I have to say their dess code attire requirements need some work. My husband and I had breakfast and we were turned away because he did not have a collared shirt: however he was wearing a very nice and very expensive vneck type shirt which technically would not pass their dress code requirements. Ok, my fault for assuming he looked very nice and there would be no issues. We left and bought him a collared shirt and came back. Which in retrospect we should have gone somewhere else. While dining, I noticed all the men in the restaurant were wearing collared shirts but some still looked pretty sloppy and I saw many women wearing outfits not even fit for McDonalds. Ok so if you’re going to enforce a dress code perhaps it should apply to both men and women. I was appalled after seeing a girl come in in VERY short cut off denim shorts, a belly shirt and covered in tattoos and that was Ok? Wow. The food was decent but not enough for me to go back.

Our entrees, crabmeat Karen, was just ok. The temperature was warm, not hot. There was too much pastry to filling ratio. Everything else was excellent.

The food was certainly good, and the table-side Bananas Foster was an unforgettable experience, but the best part of Arnaud's was the world-class service. We interacted with about five staff members and all of them were top notch in customer care. Their recommendations and meal timing were impeccable, and they even went above and beyond to celebrate our special event, call us by name, and show us around the restaurant.

Just fabulous. Dahlia,Juan and Silvio, our wait staff team, we're superb. Food was even better which was hard to believe. One of the best meals we've ever had. Everyone was extremely pleased with every bite of food and all courses. Wonderful wines too. Don't forget to start with a French 75!

A relative
Recommended this restaurant when she heard we were traveling to New Orleans. This was a fabulous experience. The filet mignon with mushroom sauce and bernaise was the best ever! Peanut butter cheesecake amazing. And loved the museum upstairs.

It was a wonderful fine dining experience. My companion was visiting NOLA for the first time and I wanted her to experience a classic New Orleans restaurant. Service was impeccable, the food delicious and the atmosphere classic. We had a wonderful crab claw appetizer, Arnaud salads, redfish and a light strawberry dessert. Every item was perfectly prepared and presented. The potato soufflé is hard to describe, maybe light pillows of taste.
I was most impressed with an extensive, properly priced wine list. I am really disturbed by wine list prices that are totally out of line with the wine’s value, not the case at Arnaud’s. It was an extremely pleasant evening.

This is one of the tourists' trap place, that everyone wanted to visit just because...We went for Sunday jazz brunch, it was nice experience overall, but I do not think it's a must to visit place since there are many cheaper and good options available. I did not regret that we went once, but will not return.

We were in town for my wife’s birthday. We were going to Wicked but it was canceled due to terrible accident. With that said this ended up our big event of the night. The service and food were excellent. What I had issue with was knowing the dress code we sat next to a table with a man in a leather blazer with no shirt( code says collared shirt) and short leather shorts. The code is no shorts. Why have the code if it doesn’t mean anything. I could eaten at popeyes if i wanted to eat with mixed crowd. It’s not like it was a tshirt, but it was no shirt and shorts which is plainly stated.

The jazz band, the atmosphere, the attention to detail and your specific needs/desires, all put this at the top of my list for branching in NOLA. Cheers to a week run, tight ship.

This was our second time visiting Arnaud’s. We felt the service was lacking, response times were very slow, waitstaff was brusque and unfriendly. The redeeming quality was that the food was fantastic, as one would expect. We will try not to visit again on a weekend night, as it was much busier than the last time we were there on a weekday night, and we often felt forgotten in the sea of patrons.

Excellent dinner in the French quarter. If you are looking for a restaurant that provides great table service, excellent food and the warm bread that you wish you could eat more of this is the place. We all tried something different, the redfish, the chicken and the gumbo were are delicious. The braised shrimp with the eggplant relish was amazing. We ended the night with the blueberry torte. Just yum. Definitely a place that is casual and has all the flavors of New Orleans

Great service and very clean facility. The bathrooms were amazingly clean and beautifully decorated. I know it may be weird to compliment a restaurant on their bathrooms, but if they aren't clean, maybe the kitchen isn't being kept clean either. The veal entree with mushroom sauce was delicious, as was the bananas foster for dessert!
